Yep, but cleaning the mating edge on the diff housing can be fussy (and smelly) because the thing keeps dripping. You also want to be careful torquing down the bolts on the factory cover because you don't want to bend the sheet metal and make it leaky.

I think your front seal is leaking too. You should have your Ford dealer look at it.

No turkey baster. This is the new one. Changed myself (as preventive measure) in <15 minutes. $12.11 shipped.

Mu apologies for the incorrect link.
The correct Ford Part # is now DR3Z-4022A.
It comes with a fitting that screws in the top of the axle & the hose fits over the axle fitting & clips on top of the differential with a breather on the end.

Screw the dealer. I ordered that part and am doing it myself. I'll make sure the fluid is level too then monitor it for leaks.

Any advice for cleaning that oil off? Dish soap and a scrub brush?

Good choice, it's easy, PM if you have any questions.
Have you replaced your overflow tank hose with the revised one with the check valve? Other thread about it here somewhere. It's also an easy fix that's supposed to prevent water pump failure. It's Ford part #ER3Z8276A. Price varies widely on internet/eBay. I think I paid $31.00 shipped. Easy to change as well, as long as engine cool .

Thanks, will do! Yes I got the coolent hose swapped, that was the easiest job ever.

So what fluid should I use to top off my diff? It's probably only very slightly low, should I just get a good additive?

I use the Motorcraft gear lube from my local Ford dealer. Gunk will clean off the oil from your rear end. Be careful and don't get it in your eyes

I think it was 75-140. It will be in the owners manual plus the parts guy will know what the factory fill is

Does anyone have the latest TSB # for this handy?

I *might* have this fix applied when I take the car in for the Takata recall (if a new inflator ever becomes available).

Well done, you see now a little 75-140 goes a long way.
